Imani, Sports, or the lack there of.

This is the post excerpt.

Here’s the thing:

My name is Imani Harris. I’m a sophomore Public Relations major with a minor in Black Studies. I love singing, eating, reading, and pretending to be a fitness enthusiast. I’m super involved on my college campus just as I was in high school BUT…

The catch is: I have NEVER played a sport in my life. PE was never my favorite thing (I preferred music and art), and although athleticism is in my genes, I had no desire to play on any sports team….ever. I was apart of show choir for seven years, which is the closest thing to athletic that I have ever been in my life. So when given the task of creating a blog site specifically centered around sports, I was anxious and unprepared to say the least.

After a few days of contemplating and brainstorming, I realized that I could use my love for women, being a woman, and being a black woman specifically to my advantage wth this blog. With that being said, my posts will be centered around black women in the sports field. That could range from the wives of male athletics to black. female olympic gold medalists. It is my hope to write blogs that will spark more interest in women’s sports and support black women athletes. Representation truly matters, so I hope my readers will get insight and inspiration from my posts. Let’s see how this goes!
